  Add to Calendar 2019-10-30 12:30 2019-10-31 18:00 Europe/Paris The Cities, Mobility and Membership Research Collaborative Launch

On October 30-31 2019, the Cities, Migration and Membership Research Collaborative will hold a launch symposium focusing on the topic of cities and mobility. This event brings together scholars, practitioners and policy-makers from around the globe with the objective of advancing empirical and normative research to understand and meet the challenges posed by human mobility to cities in the 21st Century.

The Cities, Migration and Membership Research Collaborative supports interdisciplinary research and promotes integrated approaches to conceptual and evidence-based research and policy analysis on the topic of cities and human mobility. Understanding human mobility patterns, their impact on cities, and the role that cities can play for human mobility and the integration of different communities requires an approach that focuses on multiple aspects, and requires the insights of different disciplines, methods and data.

Cities are actively looking for new ways of doing business to foster opportunities and meet the challenges they face. They are entering into national and global networks with other cities to exchange information and share “best practices.” They are organising themselves to influence national policy, and intervening in international legal and policy processes. The Cities, Migration and Membership Research Collaborative engages with city efforts by providing normative frameworks, data and analysis to help advance policies that welcome and effectively incorporate migrants into cities.
